Summary
The collection contains manuscripts for "America the beautiful," "Love planted a rose," and "Vacation song."
Correspondence, 1900-1926, discusses social engagements, the Baconian Society of America, "Poetry Journal," "Literary Review," a contribution to an endowment fund, summer school at Bread Loaf, the low salaries paid in colleges, particularly Wellesley, the most beautiful line of poetry in the English language, her review of a piece by Josephine Preston Peabody, and poetry readings by Isabel Fiske Conant, Walter De La Mare, Vachel Lindsay, David Norton, Robert G. Nathan and Marguerite Wilkinson, though she fears Lindsay may be unable to appear.
The collection also contains a printed brochure "Poems of the War," with Vachel Lindsay's hieroglyphic ownership stamp together with a typed copy of "America the beautiful" containing two differences from the authorized version of 1915. Both were in an unaddressed envelope with Vachel Lindsay's address printed on the flap. Another printed copy of "America the beautiful" is contained in a brochure giving the history of her poem.
Recipients include Grace Walcott Conkling, Mrs. Roland G. Hopkins, and Will Orton Tewson.
